I would prefer not to cite any specific instances of this. Many of the relevant comments have been deleted, or are hidden in edit histories, and my focus is what I fear may be becoming a systemic issue.
A number of posts have been made that seem to veer away from discussing the specific instances of interpersonal skills asked about in questions, and instead become opportunities for individuals to make a platform railing against political viewpoints that they disagree with.
These answers specifically call out one side or the other using broad, pejorative terminology, such as "Social Justice Warriors" or "the alt-right".
Whenever this occurs, there tends to be an exceptional number of comments, many (most?) of which get deleted.
I have seen multiple comments indicating "fear" that one side or the other is "taking over this site", which apparently indicates that it is "doomed".
Is this problematic? The claim seemingly being made is typically that these broad categories of sociopolitical orientation provide underpinnings within our society that must be addressed in order to properly apply interpersonal skills, but I don't agree with the idea that stereotypes and generalizations based upon political beliefs are helpful when framing interactions.
If these types of answers or commentary are not helpful, how do we deal with them? Flags? Downvotes? Aggressive editing? Standardized comments? Do we remove any references to these terms through deleting comments and editing posts?
